Slightly austere, leafy and herbal, the fresh 1998 lacks concentration, fat and fruit depth. It reveals a hint of herbs interwoven with attractive red and black currant aromas, but the wine falls off on the palate, and requires drinking up as it is likely to become increasingly desiccated.

Meat, ripe fruit and mushrooms on the nose follow through to a full body, with round and chewy tannins. Serious concentration of fruit on the finish. A little rustic now, but should come around nicely with bottle age
